Below is the last of the seven books I chose when I got tagged for a Literacy Month challenge.

Given the numerous books I’ve read in my life, this was quite the challenge . . . one I decided to pare down by concentrating only on fiction I’ve read. Even so, the choices were numerous. So, I pared them down even further by only choosing books I still own (with the exception of I, Robot which — were it not for some nameless bastard — I’d still own).

The last book I posted in response to the challenge was . . .

The interesting thing about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is that the trilogy has five books. There is a sixth book but as it wasn’t written by Adams, I didn’t bother with it. I probably should. Read it, that is.

I don’t follow a lot of what goes on, so when I got tagged for a Literacy Month challenge, I thought nothing of it, rolled up my make-believe sleeves, and responded to the challenge. Except, Literacy Month is November.

. . . you can’t trust anyone these days . . .

So I’m supposed to “. . . post seven books I love; one book per day, no exceptions, no reviews – just covers . . .” which I’m doing on Facebook.

I wrote posts about the first three books because they were in Italian and wanted to expand/explain my choice. This book is in English and the reason I’m writing a post is . . . because I want to.

A year ago this week I was attending Viable Paradise XIX. In fact, on this very day, the Wednesday of that week a year ago, I posted the assignment that was due on Thursday. At the time I did not know it was intended to be submitted for publication. Because I did not know, I wrote a humor piece and posted it HERE, blowing my First North America Serial Rights and making it a long shot that anyone will pick it up and publish it.

Well, some of the Vipers wanted to relive the experience. 

So, they asked Uncle Jim to provide a prompt. His answer? The Snail Rodeo. So, we are supposed to write a story incorporating a snail rodeo. The stories will be judged and the winner will win . . . satisfaction.
